Stevie was a little train wreck and needed lots of medical care for a while. Since he has been with us he has gotten lots of love, good quality food and fresh water, and veterinary care. His ears have been cleaned and medicated, though he will have to have ear medication from time to time and daily ear cleaning for the rest of his life as he has chronically bad ears from years of neglect, and he does not hear very well. He has a cataract but can still see. He has come an amazingly long way from the skinny, anemic, matted and thin-coated, sad little boy he was.
Currently he is happily hanging out with the other little Seniors in the Bed and Biscuit and having a good time with them all. He has a great laid-back, mellow, happy disposition, and he loves exploring in the yard. He is about 10-11 years old and about 27 pounds and has his beautiful, natural long tail, and he now sports a beautiful, thick, wavy, soft coat again. He is housebroken to a doggie door, loves going for his daily walk, and he is good both on leash and in the car. He needs someone who will be home with him as he has some separation anxiety at first and will cry if you leave him, but after he gets used to his new people and routine he is just fine and that disappears. He is an adorable, sweet and gentle little guy with a great, loving personality, and he is feeling loved and appreciated, maybe for the first time in his life. Sometimes he wags his tail so much that it almost looks like a little windmill! Now his real personality is shining for all to see, and what a wonderful little guy he is! Everyone who meets him absolutely falls in love with him! He just needs to find his forever family now. To see him now, looking so healthy and active, you would never guess what he had been through in his past!
